Our Covenant Group ministry seeks to grow students as disciples of Jesus by connecting them in a small group to a mentoring adult. These adults have committed to walk alongside our students and meet with them almost once per week. Covenant groups are typically divided by grade and gender (7th grade girls, 7th grade guys, etc). We ask for consistent attendance to build community and trust.
Groups meet here at the church and typically on Sunday evenings at 6 - 7:30pm. Each covenant group leader sends out an email at the beginning of the semester with the covenant group schedule.
All guys' groups typically begin in the gym for approximately 30 minutes of dodge ball before splitting in their groups. Girls go straight to their group -- many eat dinner together (brought by either parents or the leader). Covenant groups do everything from bible studies to talking about life's challenges. The goal is to build deep relationships, being able to be authentic in a place where students are cheering each other on in life and faith.
These groups are the heartbeat of our Student Ministry. They are the tool that most effectively helps students make sense of life and faith.
